The singer was arrested in Puerto Rico following allegations he had been engaged in an incestuous relationship with his 21-year-old nephew, Spanish media reports.
Ricky Martin is denying bombshell domestic violence allegations reportedly filed by his 21-year-old nephew.
It was revealed two weeks ago that a judge in Puerto Rico has issued a “domestic violence-related” restraining order against the Latin pop icon.
The alleged victim’s name was not previously disclosed. However, according to Spanish publication Marca, Martin’s brother, Eric Martin, claimed that the victim is 21-year-old Dennis Yadiel Sanchez — the singer’s nephew.
Under Puerto Rico’s laws for “incest charges,” the sentence Martin, 50, could face is five decades in prison if the shocking claims are true. The publication reported the complaint was made anonymously under Law 54, known as the Domestic Abuse Prevention and Intervention Act.
